-hitting senators made hur to put on the their announcement today ahead of the president's announcement in nevada tomorrow to show that there's bipartisan supports, to make sure that they didn't look as if they were following the president, which wouldn't be good for republicans in the group. while there is momentum among the elite in washington, we're not sure how this will play outside yet, and we saw back in 2007 you had ted kennedy aligned with the senate on the democratic side. you had john mccain on the republican side. the maverick came together and mccain got crushed on this issue. it was very damaging to him both in his presidential and also in his senate re-elect, so i think it's what's important to watch here as the immigration stuff unrolls this week. it's how are grassroots particularly conservatives reacting to these proposals. >> and the next big step coming up we've got a vote in the senate foreign relations committee tomorrow on john kerry. that's going to be automatic. he is going to be breezed through and voted for and hillary clinton leaves friday. he will be coming in next mo

for com prehundredsive immigration reform and he'll do that tuesday in nevada where the white houses president obama will double down on proposals that he's supported since taking office with the hope that this time the appetite on the hill is a little more hungry for change. >> what has been absent in the time he's put those principles forward has been the willingness by republicans to move forward with comprehensive immigration reform and what he hopes is that dynamic has changed. >> joining me now from the white house, white house correspondent, kristin welker, the president expected to give us the contours of a plan tuesday in las vegas. at this point do we have any idea what it will look like? >> craig, good afternoon. i think you will hear president obama unveil his vision for comprehensive immigration reform and i don't think it will be widely different from what he's talked about. in the past, remember, this is something he's been talking about since 2008 when he first ran for president. now it looks like he may have more support after they lost the latino vote so largely dur
